The estate is lighter, but if I’m going to have a glass of red wine without food, I tend to like juicier wines with less subtlety like many zins or less sophisticated pinot’s. Just my personal preference - if there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading this site, is that everyone’s preferences are different!
I’ve heard just too many good things and I gave in and went in for one, despite my telling myself that I am going to be good and not spend money for a few months. This is what happens when an offer starts right before I leave work - and is still there after I’ve gotten home, started dinner and cracked open a bottle of wine…
Agreed! Yet I can’t really justify another case of this. bought the full monty last time. I have enough top quality wine to last my for years. Fortunately you can drink this younger than Wellington’s cabs.
someone tell me what woot wine is of the overextracted overripe variey and if I bought some I’l go and try it to make sure I know what that means. I kno I don’t like many aussie wines, and they might be culprits.
Do you mean you are this particular vintner or that you make similar wines?
If you are Wellington…
Would you mind fixing your “Visit Us” page on your website? The “Directions” link takes you to a Yahoo Maps page that cannot find your address (and another link on your site tried to direct me to some place in India!)…and I don’t see your address anywhere on that page to just plug it into Google Maps.
I think we are fairly close (Davis) and based on praise here on Woot that I’ve read, your place would be a good one to visit.
I’m only in the market for something with a variety of types (the Red Zeppelin was the only one I considered this round), so I’m not picking it up, but this is a fab 4 pack, and I’m mystified as to how this is going to kill off the Woot Off.
I’ll check it out and get my “webmaster” on it. 11600 Dunbar Rd., Glen Ellen, CA. Unfortunately, one of the major internet map sites shows us about a half mile to the south, in a residential neighborhood, and others have copied that location.
edit: Well, I did check it. “Directions” goes to a yahoo map that does show the correct location, but with a pop-up that prompts you to choose from three different locations in India. Tres bizarre!
I was just coming back to say I found your address under the “Contact Us” page, sorry about that.
True…the Yahoo map seems to display the correct location, but it doesn’t know that it is for some reason. Like you said it wants you to choose from three places in India to narrow it down (?) and it won’t give any directions to the location it is displaying.
Oh, the link to join the wine club on the “The Wines” page, the one in text above the wine listings labelled “Not yet a club member? Click here to join.” will just return you to that same page instead of taking you to the Wine Club page.
Aren’t websites fun? I’ve never had a hyperlink work incorrectly on a printed brochure.
from what people say, wellington, roessler, harvey, corison, rasmussen and a few others seem to be autobuys on quality here. Great balanced production, local sensitivity to the terroir, sophisticated, lengthy flavours and structure. Many rave about Caton too, though apparently he’s a classic Cal bomb maker, but with great balance.
I just wish I were in the state enough to drink it all and order another case of these this time
Yes! Pillitteri Estates Cab Franc Icewine would more than make my day. As would any non-Vidal icewine from Niagara.
While we’re adding to the wish list (WD, you keeping track?), how’s about some Niagara VQA Baco Noir/Cabernet Franc/Gewurztraminer/Pinot Noir? Pillitteri Estates, Stonechurch Vineyards, Harbour Estates Winery, Rief Winery are all old Niagara region favourites.
